UK Wedding Planner CREATING FUN, CREATIVE and stylish Wedding Weekends

About Me

Hi, my name is Katie Slater and I am a UK wedding planner based in Cambridgeshire. I live here with my two kids, hubby and our fox red lab Sansa (yes it is Game of Thrones). I love my job, mostly because of the different people I get to work with everyday. For example, I can go from an edgy urban London wedding to a Luxury wedding in Surrey. Both couples have a completely different story which needs to be told throughout their wedding day. Bringing their vision to life and overcoming any challenges along the way is what I love the most.  In other words, I guess you could say, I am a problem solver!

Why hire me?

I understand that wedding planning can get overwhelming and exhausting. Sometimes, huge outdoor set-ups and multiple suppliers all asking you questions can take some of the enjoyment out of your day. Similarly, it is this pressure during the lead up to your wedding that can result in some couples feeling anxious.

That’s where I come in. Bringing a mix of creativity and organisation to the table. Above all, I handle all of the administration, leaving you with the fun bits. Before I was a UK wedding planner, I was a transactional lawyer in London.  As a result, I can sympathise with the pressures that my clients face and work around their needs. It also means I am obsessively organised and fanatic about details!

I am an experienced UK wedding planner and event planner specialising wedding weekends with a little bit of luxury and a whole lot of heart. Energetic, passionate and extremely organised, I believe that every wedding deserves a completely bespoke planning experience. This is no place for a cookie cutter.

My Story

After a successful career as a lawyer I fulfilled a life-long ambition of launching my own event planning business. I started off organising large corporate events for multinationals such as Epson until I founded the Rustic Wedding Show .  Unlike the name suggests, the show focuses on couples who are planning fun, immersive and creative weddings.

I have a particular affinity for outdoor weddings, be they marquees, tipis or any other structure.  Being able to construct a private world just for you and your guests where before there was only grass is incredibly special, challenging and inspiring.   Furthermore, I write a monthly wedding planning feature for Festival Brides as their expert UK wedding planner. Understandably, being asked to do this was a huge honour.

What Next?

Working with me as your wedding planner means getting my undivided attention. I love what I do, and approach every event I organise wholeheartedly. I take on a limited number of events per year – only 6 full planning weddings in fact. This means that I am on hand to co-ordinate every last detail, and to be with you every step of the way.
